Principal’s Message


Welcome to Prescott College Southern

We are a co-educational,  Foundation to Year 12 school located on the outskirts of the picturesque Southern Vales region of Adelaide, South Australia. Our school is built on the foundations of our motto, Nihil Sine Deo, Nothing Without God, and this is at the heart of all that we do, both in and out of the classroom. We have a proud history of offering all students a dynamic program that caters to their individual needs to afford them every opportunity of success.

Our dedicated staff work with the students in all areas of school life to help them develop values and attitudes that prepare them for a bright future. This is achieved through programs that focus on the development of the whole person which provides our young people with important skills for life.

Our community is nurturing, and this creates a place where the students feel comfortable; a place where they know they belong. This allows each individual to thrive in their own right through an education that is tailored specifically to their needs. At Prescott College Southern we celebrate the diverse gifts that God provides each of us with and our students are given the opportunities to put these into action, through service, in order to make a positive contribution to the wider community.

You are welcome to come and see what our school is all about. We’d like to meet you and give you an opportunity to spend some time in our community so that you can experience what it is that makes Prescott College Southern, a special place.
